One week in and conventional wisdom already is taking a coffee break with the election night exit pollsters. Who would've thought, after one week, that:
The most dominant Heat player would be Dwyane Wade in a landslide over Shaquille O'Neal?
The Suns, who finished last in the West last season, would start 3-0 and lead the league in scoring at 110 ppg?
Last year's Cinderella, the Jazz, would be this year's behemoth, blowing out teams by an average of 24 ppg?
The NBA's expansion team, the Charlotte Bobcats, would get their first win in their second game?
The Kings would be in last place in the West?
Kobe Bryant would lead the league in scoring ... well, at least some wisdom still holds true.
Each Monday, Insider will break down the week that was the good, the bad and the upside.
